VTOL VR is an early access virtual reality flight simulator. Built from the ground up as a realistic attempt at controlling a Vertical Take-Off and Landing vehicle, the game allows players to strap in and explore maps and missions.
Enter the cockpit
VTOL VR is an impressive simulation of flight currently lacking in content. The VTOL vehicle is fully realised in 3D space, controlled by using the cockpits controls in virtual space. This aspect of the game works flawlessly on high-end systems with a satisfying feeling of weight. Missions are fairly bare bones and mainly consist of engaging enemies and flying to places, using the vehicle's onboard missiles, guns and IR flares. A focus on realism has created an engaging flight system but with little else to do. VTOL VR is in early access and should be seen as a demo of something more to come. The single developer has produced an impressive first build but has a massive amount of work to do. It is difficult at present to see how one individual will be able to complete everything required.
VTOL VR is a great first start. Flying the VTOL vehicle feels incredible in virtual reality but, as with all early access games, expectations should be as low as possible to avoid feeling ripped off.
